• I noticed that the BNE - SFO flight is now showing as via SYD, but still on 787 metal (in August). I thought the plan was to sub out the 787 and replace with the 747. Does anyone know what the plan is?

  • Well I guess my BNE - SFO J class on the 787 in August is not happening now. This was a holiday using points.Not interested in routing via Sydney on the old J class on the 747, so I wonder if QF will offer an alternative (perhaps LAX) or waive the cancellation penalty.

  • Nice cars, all of them. But at this moment in my life it's the new Kia Sorrento coming out mid-year that has my attention :)

  • They've selected the A350. Haven't ordered it. In the mean time Boeing starts preparing another bid. Lots of water to pass before this is real. Let's see what happens.

  • Virgin Australia selling two A330's?
